Big Pharma wants it all. If Joe puts a cap on insulin, Big Pharma will not give him his 10%. Tough call for Joe.

High prices only hurt people that need this to live. Not dampen innovation. Big Pharmaceutical just want to get richer. Good job Biden!!! Keep up the great work!

Big pharma has been overcharging Americans for way too long, and then selling prescription drugs to other countries for a fraction of what they charge us. It`s time for Americans to stop being milked

Beware of unintended consequences. Like insulin shortages.

That will be a way for Big Pharma, to justify price gouging. Excuse me, I mean, reasonable price increases.

Isn't the new annoying KMIZ popup fun. When you click on every article, you have to also delete the pop up, so you can read the article. So very intelligent of KMIZ.

Horrible idea KMIZ. Will only make me not come here if it continues. What a pain.

Adam, KMIZ doesn't want either one of us. Because we have an opinion, and don't walk lock step with them. Hang in there friend.

what other medical procedure are mandate supporters think employers should be allowed to mandate? How about employer mandated exercise? Would that be ok too?

No job owner or business has a conservatorship over me choosing what medical therapy or gene therapy that would force me to do what they say, no right to my private health info, nor my health history. That is unconstitutional. My proof: The US Constitution.

At this point COVID is no more dangerous than the common flu. There is widespread natural immunity and many people have succumbed to the 24-7 media (who take $$$ from big pharma) hype and have gotten the experimental gene therapy. Even the CDC says only 6% of the deaths are caused BY COVID. LGB

The state of Missouri ranks dead last in teacher pay and state worker pay across the country. State workers, like me, are handed heavy workloads and have immense responsibilities in our work. While I love my job it is drastically overdue for state workers to recieve a raise to retain good employees.

You want services, the LEAST you can do is 1.5 percent below current inflation. They need more than 5.5 or it just kicks the can a few months down the road.

Yes they should. But it has to be greater than 7% inflation rate (and 7% is a bogus number.)

Corrections is the largest dept in the state. Yet they're the second lowest paid corrections dept of every state and has the 8th highest inmate population. They desperately need a raise

State employees are essential to keep the state going. Wages are going up every where the state should follow suit.

Because we are one of the lowest paid out of all 50 states and it is hard for us to find or keep good employees at our current salary.

With all the Biden inflation, caused by .gov printing trillions of dollars out of thin air in the failed COVID response, they need a raise. Gov workers with all their vacation days and great benefits should be paid less than the equivalent private sector job. I am not sure that is the case. LGB
